Everything we do at XL feet, we do just like other shoe merchants, except we do it on a bigger scale. As in, we do it on a massively bigger scale. For example, when you come to us for dress shoes, you can find oxfords, wing tips, loafers, you name it - and all in massive sizes - all the way up to 21!
There are all different types of shoes that are suitable for a variety of occasions. Whether you need shoes for work, hiking or lounging around the house, there’s a shoe out there will meet your needs. However, for the men who wear extra large mens shoes, discovering one set place where you can find a shoe to fulfill what you need them for, can be difficult.
You might be one of those people just is just inseparable from your favorite pair of slippers, but you might also be someone that needs a little bit of old fashioned convincing. It might seem obvious why you need to wear a pair of workboots or hiking boots when you’re outside or on the trail, just as it makes sense to wear the right athletic shoes when playing sports or at the gym. And while the title of this piece suggests this will be five reasons to get yourself a pair of men’s extra wide slippers, it’s really just about getting yourself a nice pair of slippers in general. It’s just that since you’re at XL Feet, it’s probably tough for you to find slippers in your size, but we can help with that.
Many of us from time to time, in a hurry, will just settle for or slip into the nearest pair of shoes we can find. You can forget the fact that when we’re called to help unload something from the car or go get the mail that we might not be wearing the right shoes to go out. We’re talking actually making a pair of shoes that just doesn’t fit right a designated pair of shoes for daily use.
That’s enough of a problem for most of us whose shoe sizes are in the average range, and wouldn’t be considered excessively large or small, and there are scenarios in which shoes that are too big can be dangerous on a variety of levels.
But what happens when you need larger or wider men’s shoes?
What happens when you need shoes in sizes beyond what you can reliably or predictably find in stores? It might be alright to run outside for a few minutes in the wrong pair of shoes, but there are a variety of circumstances under which it just isn’t wide to make this a habit. You certainly shouldn’t be wearing shoes that are too small, particularly if you need those shoes for work. Here are only a few of the problems that you might experience with shoes that just don’t fit right, and where you can get ones that do.
Are you ready for a challenge? Alright, here goes - Where can you find size 17 mens shoes with a minimum of headache and at reasonable prices you’d pay for shoes in other sizes? Here’s a follow up - where can you get size 17 mens shoes at all? Perhaps you’ve spent countless hours at retail and department locations which shall mercifully remain nameless, looking for shoes, boots or other footwear in your size. You may have wandered the aisles and the racks looking for shoes that would fit you - anything that might suffice - with nary anything more than a measly pair or two of size 13s to show for it, and if you’re hitting size 17, size 13 just won’t cut it. That’s only the tip of the iceberg though, because size 13’s are rare enough.
If you need shoes in a size anything outside what many would consider the ordinary realm of sizes, say a size 13, the search for shoes that will fit you can be downright comical from an outside perspective, if not ruthlessly frustrating when you’re in the driver’s seat. Compounding this aggravation is the simple fact that the shoe size you need is unlikely (not) going to change until the later years of your life, and even worse, the need for shoes that fit properly is a must. At one time or another, we’ve all probably slipped into a pair of shoes that were either too big or too small, but if you subject yourself to that practice for too long the consequences will reach all the way from simple discomfort to certain injury.
While it might seem unusual, the gift of quality footwear is extremely valuable – especially for someone with extra-large or extra-wide feet. When it’s not easy to find the perfect fit, not to mention the struggle of finding stylish options in specialty sizes, receiving a great pair of shoes is an incredible gift. We know this all too well here at XL Feet. But we also understand that this can be tricky to get just right for someone other than yourself. Fortunately, we’ve compiled a guide to footwear gifts that will be sure to treat any of your loved ones to quality, comfort, and style – even those with extra-large feet.
